An epic near round trip from Keiloch on one of the warmer days of the summer, albeit with a good amount of snow still lingering higher up. A good scramble up the tor to reach the top. Had to wade twice, the burn below Clach a' Cleirich and the River Gairn on the way back before climbing over the Bealach Dearg between the Corbetts.Windy Corner26/05/2012

With Colin on a very windy day. Wasn't certain which was the highest bit of the tor in the mist, so we scrambled up to the top of the three highest looking sections to be certain. Dropped down to camp around 1km south of The Sneck.alistairpooler22/10/2011
